Social Media and Feminism #SoMeFem event 6th March University of Salford at Media City UK

I was thrilled to be a keynote speaker at the Social Media and Feminism event organised by the British Psychological Society to celebrate International Women’s Day on March 6th at the University of Salford’s Media City campus. The day saw a wide range of inter-disciplinary talks from feminists from the fields of psychology, sociology and media studies. My paper looked at the concept of celebrity feminism and attempted to examine how this idea has gained ground via social media by focusing on the examples of celebrity feminists Beyonce and Emma Watson. It was a brilliant event that generated a huge amount of debate about how social media can both greatly assist and hinder the feminist cause. Looking forward to #SoMeFem 2016!B_Z2KOTWQAAx7zy.jpg-largeB_aeA38WYAARotu.jpg-largeB_airpLWcAAx_SC.jpg-large
